When Snoke fell in Episode VIII The Last Jedi quite a few fans were in an uproar. Snoke had been underused, they argued, complaining we knew too little of Snoke prior to his demise. A good reason to take a deeper and more general look at the Mystery Box of the unknown villain.
In our series Star Wars’ Forgotten Women we put a spotlight on female characters that have an interesting and worthwhile story-arc and part in Star Wars. This 8th instalment is about a character we first get to know as a young girl during The Clone Wars and later as an adult woman during the start of the Rebellion: Numa!

In a previous post we looked at one of my favourite characters Darth Maul (which many people seemed to really enjoy reading) in which I mentioned Asajj Ventress. They are very similar when looking at their birthplace and the people they initially grew up around. However towards their adolescent years they both start to take completely different paths. Both owe their start in the use of the dark ways of the Force mostly to mother Talzin. Throughout the Clone Wars series we learn a lot about the young woman that Ventress is and the conflict she constantly feels within herself; where does her alliance lie? While the CW series does not give us her whole story, it is known from outside sources so in this post we will have a look at her timeline, her big turning points and what eventually became of her.
Darth Maul has throughout the years gone from being a very badass character but without much background to what I believe to be one of the most complex characters in the starwars universe. We were introduced to him in the Phantom menace and he immediately captivated audiences with his completely different fighting style (more martial arts infused), his terrifying appearance and of course his – way too early – end. Now before we continue to delve into the mystery surrounding this sith lord I want to warn you that there of course will be SPOILERS ahead. If you haven’t seen any of the Clone Wars, Rebels or Han Solo and want to preserve the possible shock elements when watching it then click away!!
